MAHPERD Policy on Membership and Convention Registration for PRESENTERS

Due to the expenses involved in a non-profit organization event of this magnitude, similar to our National and Regional organizations, MAHPERD Policy requires that ALL in attendance at the annual Convention, including Speakers/Presenters, must be paid 2024-2025 MAHPERD members and also pay the Convention Registration fees EXCEPT if:

1. (Membership) Presenters certify that they are either:
(a) paid current members of other related HPERD professional organizations with which MAHPERD has reciprocity (includes other STATE HPERD associations, such as New Hampshire, Maine etc, but NOT Shape America)
or
(b) are employed exclusively in the fields that are NOT part of the HPERD professions (doctors, police, education department personnel, etc.)

2. (Registration) Presenters who are Non-MAHPERD members, employed outside the HPERD professions, are asked to register for the Convention IF they plan to attend other sessions/programs, but will be exempted upon advanced request IF they will be in attendance only to make their own presentation.

ALL MAHPERD Members must register for entry to the Convention.
Submission of Proposals signifies acceptance of policies above.
All Presenter Proposals must be submitted online.
